Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have made their journey to recovery with the coronavirus a matter of public record. The high-profile couple were among the first famous people to be diagnosed with the virus, which they announced two weeks ago.

Now, they're on the road to recovery, and Wilson has just provided another update on her condition. "Still in quarantine. Feeling good today!," Wilson wrote on her Instagram, explaining that she's still trying to fight the spread of the virus.

"BUT I think we need some new songs to update our Quarantunes playlist. Text me your suggestions!!," Wilson continued. The actress had previously offered up a playlist of songs that she was using to help get her through her time in quarantine.

Wilson also a listed a phone number that followers could text if they had suggestions for songs. During her time in quarantine, Wilson has been writing and recording songs to entertain her more than one million followers on the platform.

Hanks has also been providing fairly steady updates on his health. His last post was on Tuesday night, when he urged his followers to join the couple on Wednesday night for a virtual voter registration party. "Whatever couch you're stuck on, join our voter registration #CouchParty," he wrote.

Hanks and Wilson's diagnosis was a big step toward public understanding about just how widespread the impacts of the virus could be. In his initial announcement, Hanks said that he was carefully following the instructions of his doctors.

"Well, now. What to do next?," Hanks wrote after telling followers that he and Wilson had tested positive. "The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?"

In the days since their diagnosis, Wilson and Hanks have tried to model the quarantine behavior that people across the country are being asked to take part in.

Hanks and Wilson are currently quarantining in Australia because Hanks was in the midst of filming an Elvis Presley biopic when he tested positive for the illness. Production on that project shuttered following Hanks's diagnosis, and like many film sets around the world, it's unclear when it will reopen.

In the meantime, it seems like Hanks and Wilson are finding a variety of ways to pass the time in quarantine. While Wilson raps, Hanks is reportedly talking on the phone with friends scattered across Hollywood.
